more than a lot of the spectrum is currently used by the defense department and other federal users. they are wondering if congress will force them to move. >> the defense committee, i believe, comes out to make a public remarks about working with the defense department and i think that was noteworthy because previously it has been an issue just as the commerce committee have dealt with. and it is a sign that they are making a more comprehensive push to have the department find ways that they can relinquish to the private sector. >> host: go ahead. >> guest: i think the we are offering a defense authorization bill amendment in december. i am not certain about that, but a spectrum that is currently held by the defense department. he has shown that that is a priority for him. the wireless companies were probably correct in that the spectrum will not be saved by this coming option. it is not really in line with the growing appetite for mobile data consumption and all those sorts of things. so governments coming up with a new plan, some talk about sharing spectrums between the wireless

indicated a concern like this. before june 25, 19th it the, general macarthur and secretary of defense said south korea was not inside the us defense perimeter. when the invasion took place, and truman focused on it, the reaction was to fight. the same thing happened in the invasion of kuwait. it was an unexpected contingency. if we had made an effort to be clear that deterrence was in advance, neither would have occurred. the reason i am pessimistic about the situation in asia is it seems to me there are potential contingencies of that sort. if they happened, they would not be as crazy as they seem if you asked the average person. add british ambiguity about if they would oppose an attack on france in 1914. the germans had known in advance, maybe they would have behaved differently. in 1990, the us decision in kuwait was we do not take a position on a territorial dispute between iraq and kuwait. we did not take a position. the border was on define. we should have added to that statement that we would oppose any support of either party. the message would have gotten across. it was ambiguous
senator from nebraska. he is now president obama's nominee to be secretary of defense. john kerry, of course, went on to become a democratic senator from massachusetts. he is now president obama's nominee to be secretary of state. eric shinseki went on to become an army lifer. he went on to become a four star general. he was appointed secretary of veterans affairs by president obama, in president obama's first term. general shinseki is expected to stay on at veterans affairs in the second term. if senator kerry and senator hague really confirmed in the two positions for which they are nominated, which especially in the case of senator hagel is no sure bet, but if they are all confirm, this will be the first time that there are three vietnam combat veterans in the cabinet. the expiration of vietnam as an american political issue -- and the expiration of the issue of vietnam service for american political leaders, that expiration date has been prematurely proclaimed for decades now. when bill clinton in 1992 won the presidency, despite having not served in vietnam, and his opponents
that is for the head of the cia. these are big positions. let's move to the defense secretary as well. what can you tell us about the president's pick for defense secretary, the controversy down in d.c. surrounding potentially that choice? >> reporter: what has concerned both republicans and democrats, in terms of the choice of chuck hagel for defense secretary is essentially remarks that he made when he was in the senate about israel. in 2006 he gave an interview tomorrow toer middle east envoy aaron david miller. hagel said the following. >> the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up there. i'm a united states senator. i'm a united states senator. >> reporter: hagel favors direct talks with iran and as well as hamas. and he was one of two senators to vote against sanctioning iran. >> he consistently advocated weakness with respect to our enemies, with respect to the nation of iran. he has opposed sanctions over and over again and the job of the secretary of defense is to be a serious, credible strength and deterrent and, unfortunately i think weakness in a secretary of defense invites could

size? how many people are qualified to manage a bureaucracy the size of the defense department? he set that question aside. this is -- this was the president's choice, first choice, and obviously this very close relationship with john brennan, trying to give sort of the cia its mojo back, if you will, in the intelligence community, and i think that that's something that brennan -- that some folks in the intel community i think are hoping brennan does. let's also not forget that, you know, with brennan and hagel going up at the same time, andrea, any questions that there might have been on brennan when it came to torture and the interrogation, that all goes away because i think all the focus is going to be on hagel. >> now, michael lighter, chuck todd has been reporting that dennis mcdonough is a lock for chief of staff to preplace jack lou when lou is nominated, we expect, to become treasury secretary, and tom donnell will stay as national security advisor. tell us what we -- what you know from working with tom donnell and dennis mcdonough, his deputy. >> well, tom -- talk about a bunc

not little scratches and cuts. it looks like defensive wounds and i don't know how anybody could overlook that. as far as the idea that drawing dealers came to collect money from her. if you you remember on your show in the 1990s when i made the sensational claim that we had proof that whitney houston was being threatened by her drug dealer with death because she wasn't paying for her drugs that was before anybody knew that whitney was taking drugs. all this was borne out because whitney admitted she had been taking drugs since 1992. when she died her yearly intake of drugs was $230,000 and there were numerous cases not just that we claimed of h her being approached by drug dealers and threatened with physical harm and death and in one case bobby brown was kidnapped. there was a whole book written about this incident. he was kidnapped by a gang called the preacher gang and they tied him up naked, beat him, tortured him, pointed guns at his head and then had him call whitney and say you better bring $400,000 or we are going to kill your boyfriend. >> rod wheeler, former well known homicide
